MobileMag links to a short YouTube video of Nav N Go’s 3D GPS software in action, which is being made available to manufacturers for use in devices that will be sold in the US. The software has its owns graphics engine, shows terrain, road elevation, and buildings, and can show over 10 miles in one view. Nav N Go software has been available on devices in Europe, including personal navigation devices like the Mio C620 and will be included on Sony PSP handheld gaming devices sold in Europe beginning in March.
According to Nav N Go’s press release for CES,Ingram Micro will be launching a version of their new V7 Portable Navigation Devices that will include Nav N Go iGO 8 and HP will have the software on its iPAQ Travel Companion. No word yet on whether Nav N Go software will make the move to in-car navigation devices, although I have to say that could get pretty distracting watching the lovely virtual 3D landscape while you’re supposed to be driving through the actual 3D landscape.
